I'm writing up my birth plan. Where is a good website to go to make sure I didn't leave anything out that I may not know I don't want <snicker>?

One suggestion I read in Silent Knife was to write your birth plan on your belly! That way they can't say "Well, I never got it!" It might be good for your OB (if that's what you're using) to have the words "NO EPISIOTOMY" right in her face while she's down there!

...refusing the vitamin K shot for the baby after birth. The only reason (that I know of) to give your baby that shot is if you have a boy and are planning on circumcising. I believe it helps his blood to clot more efficiently. Babies blood will become more able to clot by themselves but it takes a week or so if I am remembering right. I am anti-circ myself but just in case everyone isn't, I thought I'd mention it.
